Super indulgent and versatile, this easy to make, rich chocolate cake is perfect to adapt for many occasions, birthdays, family celebrations or baked as a lovely treat to serve with a coffee.
I made this deep rich chocolate cake the first time with help from my two youngest who were both teenagers at the time, a team baking effort. This has since been a regular bake for celebrations in our household! Serves 12-16 generously.
It’s fun to bake and delicious to eat, this cake is guaranteed to disappear very quickly I can vouch for that!
I’ve used this recipe for a few different special occasions and made it slightly different each time, I don’t always make the truffles for decorating and the ganache can be swapped out for shop bought ready-made icing, just put it in an icing bag and pipe it. It’s good to have different options and play around with the finished look.
